Cocoa Pancakes For Sunday Morning

image

Sunday morning ~ time to have a lie in? Nope! Not in this household. We were up at the crack of dawn and hungry. Time for pancakes to give us a much needed sugar rush, well more me as the children are always raring to go!  A soft fluffy treat to brighten up our say and satisfy our empty tummies!

I incorporated cocoa in my scotch pancake recipe so that the kids get a chocolatey taste. I however couldn’t resist more chocolate on mine! Also have done the recipe in tbsp and cup measurements so makes it quick and easy to get these yummy pancakes on.

Have a super Sunday! And enjoy! Much love D x
